So, in amongst the tier 1s that I've started with, there's a pair of premium Tier 8's - a Soviet T44 and US T32 (I think)


 

I can only assume they are "gifts" from WG for newcomers, but it just seems odd having tier 8's for FNG's.  are they any good to use, based on my rather limited number of games?


 

The only thing I could think they are there for is an easy access to the frontline game mode - which I've noticed is tier 8 only.  Is that the case?  If so, are there pools of players in frontline that distinguish based on experience, or would I get thrown into the mix with everyone if I tried it out?


 

I tried seeing if they are any good by skimming the pinned thread above on premiums but couldn't see them mentioned.

No, those are not gifts, we all got them temporary for that one game mode which you can enjoy for short period of time. Eventualy they wil be removed.

Btw funny map that is, played it once... seemed that nobody had the slightest idea what we were doing in that battle but we won :)

Nope, you will be tossed in the same pool as everyone else. No "skill" based MM there. The tank will be there for the duration of the game mode. It's not a bad way to train up a crew or two if you plan to go up the Russian meds etc, as they still get the 1.5x crew bonus xp. That and you have a place to be "bad" at without having the battles count on your service record or be penalized for it. So look at it as a place for you to experiment if anything. Learn from mistakes etc before you jump deeper into randoms.

Obviously give each a go but you will struggle and may well hate the games.  You are likely to die easily and be otherwise ineffective.  Tier 8 is brutal until you are used to it.  But it will give you a taster and you will get to keep the 2 crews after the event.

What's the point if we lose the event tanks they're trained for? 

Will have to retrain them anyway. If I'm not mistaken....

True or you just leave them in the garage till you either unlock the T44 and T32 standard versions or have a premium tank you can use them in.

The idea was so anyone could take part in frontline.

I have both the standard versions and they still gave me the temp premiums
